Neighborhood: Chueca & Malasaña
Overview

Locals know El Palentino well. It owes its popularity to cheap drinks, appetizing snacks served until late, and its embodiment of a true Madrileño atmosphere. Botellines, or small bottles of Spanish beer, are only 1EUR a pop, while sandwiches like the pepito—which is grilled beef with tomatoes on a baguette—cost 2 EUR each. Though this is no posh place (bright neon lights meet shabby decor), El Palentino has authentic character; in the past it has attracted the likes of famous Spanish actors such as Antonio Banderas and Javier Bardem. On weekends it transforms into the haunt of youngsters who come to celebrate being Madrileño at heart, especially if there s a football game on TV. - Michelle Campagna
